Add to Calendar 9/23/2016 11:00 am 9/23/2016 America/Chicago Physics Careers Seminar: "DOE Synchrotron: Between Industry and Academia" DESCRIPTION:

Abstract: There are many ways to be involved in research besides being a professor. Mary works as a staff scientist at a synchrotron at Argonne National Laboratory. She will discuss what goes on day-to-day at the synchrotron, the ups and downs there, and the paths to a National Laboratory job. Questions will be welcomed and encouraged.

Bio: Mary Upton earned a PhD in condensed matter physics from UIUC under the auspices of TC Chiang. While a student at UIUC she performed photoemission measurements on thin films at the (now defunct) Synchrotron Radiation Center in Stoughton, WI. She subsequently was a post-doc at Brookhaven National Lab doing resonant inelastic measurements at intercalated graphite compounds at the Advanced Photon Source (APS). This lead to the opportunity to work as a beamline scientist at APS.
